RESOURCES AND F RESOURCES UPDATE Flying Arts Alliance: How to find the money for a project or event Securing funding and finding sponsorship for an art project or event can be a tough job. While it is tempting to take a scatter gun approach to fundraising and see what comes back, a little more method in the madness might increase your chances of success. This workshop identifies and discusses the different areas of funding opportunities that are available, outlining a clear step by step process to identify and target potential sponsors and partners. Like most things, a carefully considered and targeted approach will likely yield more benefits than an unplanned last minute rush. With a bit of forethought and a good plan, securing the support you need may not be as hard as you think. Stephen Clark presents the workshop at Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, 420 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley on Sunday 8 June 2014 from 10 am to 4 pm Cost: $55 ($45 for members) BYO Lunch.
